TPiRecap: 16 June 2015 (Back In the Driver's Seat Edition)

Back in the saddle at long last. And extremely annoyed that circumstances made me miss out on yesterday's show, which featured a Money Game win where, believe it or not, the Easter egg (43) actually was the back of the car for a change, and a DSW! If time and patience permits, I might be able to do up something over the weekend about that one, or perhaps come Monday when CBS has a rerun scheduled for Price's usual timeslot.

In the meantime, though? Let's just concentrate on getting back on the horse and back to what passes for normal around here, now that all my computer woes are in the past and I'm no longer even feeling as under the weather as I was yesterday.

Time for analysis:

$610 strikes me as a believable price for the XBone. That essentially narrows the tens digit of the car down to 5 or 8, which is a coin flip to say the least. Unfortunately, Denise is only going to get one shot at it; guess right and win, guess wrong and it's burger money (and not even much of that).
